From Silk Road Teas

Organic, high grade, rich in taste, a true Keemun varietal from Anhui Province. Often characterized as the Burgundy of teas due to its dark rust-brown cup color and complex, winey flavor. We think this tea has the body and flavor to satisfy. Good with food. Brew for 3 minutes at 195 – 205 degrees.

I like this Mao Feng. The price is right, and so is the flavor profile. It is in my daily rotation.

one of the better black teas available at a reasonable price. this tea doesn’t have the tendency to get bitter like the more readily available blacks from India. not a complex flavor profile, but a dependably good cup

Good black tea that will not let you down. If you are starting to drink tea this a great place to start with black teas. Fruity taste with a hint of smoke almost wine like but in a subtle way. Easy to drink with food or by itself.

I’m running out of straight black (or unflavored black blends) to try! This is somewhat disturbing, because I thought that the majority of my tea collection was black unflavored tea and I can’t figure out whether the majority is oolong at this point or flavored black tea. I’m not motivated to count the teas in my cupboard. Too much to do today.

This one is really hitting the spot today. The smell coming out of the bag after cracking it open is chocolatey and tree-like. Chocolate covered tree?

The steeped tea has a baked goods, bready aroma that turns into a dark fruity one. I’m smelling blackberries here. The smokiness that keemuns often have here smells to me like toastiness instead. There’s a depth to the aroma that is pleasing, though it’s not what I’d call malty. The tea is clear, and lighter in color than I expected — a sort of amber, or light honey color.

The smoke comes out in the flavor, though it’s not overpowering and certainly not enough to be lapsang-like. It’s a smooth tea, medium-light bodied, and with a sweetness to the sip that is honey-like. It doesn’t taste winey to me; more like toasty bread with a hint of berry.

Very nice indeed. I’m glad to support a (sort of local) company like Silk Road.
